A Season of Possibilities 

Dear Beloved of Christ,

We are entering a busy season - a season of possibilities.

This is the theme of our pledge drive: "All Things Are Possible" from Mark 10:27. Do you believe it? Do you believe that the Spirit is at work in, among and through us? Do you believe that God can do miracles?

A miracle - God creating possibility where we see none. God is creating possibilities at CHPC, and you are invited to be an instrument of those possibilities. How?

First, join us for the three congregational gatherings that start this Sunday. We will meet in Henry Young Hall for lunch and conversation on October 9, 30 and November 6. It is too late to reserve lunch for Oct. 9, but you can still attend. Just bring your own lunch.

Secondly, prayerfully consider pledging to the ministry and mission of the church for 2023. If you already pledge, can you raise your pledge amount for this coming year? Your financial support is vital to maintain what we have and explore the new possibilities God has for us.

Thirdly, continue to hold the congregation in prayer. We are in the midst of discovering God's intention for our future. It is hard and deeply spiritual work. We need your prayer support.

Thank you!



Committee Meetings October 12

You can be “in the room where it happens”

Presbyterians are known for doing things “decently and in order”—and that means committees! Much of our mission and ministry at Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church starts with the work of these four committees:

Worship (Sunday morning worship, music, special services)

Stewardship (budget, building and grounds)

Nurture (Christian education, spiritual growth, community-building)

Outreach (our witness in the community, nation, world)

These committees usually meet on the second Wednesday of each month, at 6:45 p.m., on Zoom. We meet together for the first 15 minutes to share calendar items and prayer concerns, then break into committees. Anyone is welcome to join us and share your ideas for our life together.

Here is the Zoom link for October 12 committee meetings:


Children’s Sunday School on Zoom

Children of all ages are invited to come Zoom with us from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. every Sunday. We will gather for music, Bible stories, crafts, and more. Throughout the fall we will hear stories about Moses, Ruth, David, and other ancestors in the faith. Our crazy friend Sid is back too. Join us each week to see how Sid, once again, has fundamentally misunderstood the Bible story. 

Never a dull moment in children’s Sunday school! Teachers are Jerry Van Marter, Eva Stimson, Bev Machin, and Luke Van Marter (aka Sid). Please let us know if you would like to join our teaching team. Email Jerry to get on the list to receive weekly Zoom invitations and other announcements.

Join the Conversation, Sunday at 5 p.m. on Zoom

In a series of sermons this fall, Peggy is exploring values that young people—and others—may be looking for in a faith community: authenticity, accountability, inclusivity, hospitality, impact, belonging, growthful, meaningful.

For those interested in making a deeper dive into these values, Mark and Peggy are leading Zoom conversations each Sunday evening through October 23, at 5 pm. They will be using the book Meaning Making, published by the Springtide Research Institute, but you do not have to read the book to join the conversation!

Zoom link for the conversations:


CHPC Presbyterian Women

CHPC’s Presbyterian Women’s Circle engages in Bible study, prayer, outreach, fellowship—and lots of laughter. The 2022-2023 Bible Study is “Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight” by Carol M. Bechtel. Since the pandemic map now lists Jefferson County in the yellow zone, we will meet in person in the back building Gathering Room on the second Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. Masks will be required for these gatherings. Please consider joining us as a way to learn and get to know one another better. For more information, contact Diana Stephen (502-896-6075 or dasky@bellsouth.net).

Coffee and Conversation

You are invited to stop by Henry Young Hall on Sunday mornings from 10:00 to 10:45 for coffee and conversation. Nothing formal is planned. This is just an opportunity to be together and maybe get to know one another better.

There will be a clean-up day on October 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to take out large items for the bi-annual neighborhood junk day.

Mark Your Calendar: CHPC Christmas Concert 

Members of the Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church Music Ministry will present a Christmas concert on Sunday afternoon, December 18, at 2:00 p.m. in the church’s sanctuary. During the concert, Amy Pauw and Doug Yeager will present a flute suite of Christmas carols. Frank Kirk, Jr. and David Paul Gibson will present selections from THE NUTCRACKER and favorite Christmas songs, including WHITE CHRISTMAS, I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, and SLEIGH RIDE played piano four-hand style. The concert is free and open to all and will be followed by a light reception.
